tacos and elotes tonight
I had steak nachos for lunch... considering steak tacos for dinner lol
Oh fuck! I love those !! @Matt
I airfry them for about 10 min at 400F
Every time I deglaze a pan: holy shit it actually works!
Lemon garlic and broth braised chicken breast for din din tonight. With fried brussel sprouts and a weird pasta I found at the Russian store. I love the shape!
It’s like a stegosaurus
quarantine has me drinking too much beer and wine
Unless you’re a tomato fiend like me then it’s 2-3 servings
Slow cooker pot roast with mashed potatoes and peas.
Alexia makes my favorite frozen potato products.
The more I think about it, the more I think 6 servings is a stretch @Jason Tate
I’d say 3-4. I usually have leftovers when cooking for 2, but only a serving or two.
I just had the Alexia sweet potato fries the other day!
I stocked up on a bunch of stuff from the grocery store that doesn't expire forever to make cheap meals in a pinch in the future. I've been enjoying some of this stuff more than I expected haha. I made tuna melts with some cheap white bread, kraft singles, and a packet of sweet and spicy tuna mixed with kewpie mayo. It was delicious and I could have eaten like four of them lol.
I love tuna melts. So good.
taco Tuesday from home was fucking fantastic. we are taking a page from Ken’s playbook and making nachos with leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
also ate enough elotes to make myself miserable
what came first the elotes or the misery
love outsiders pizza.
i made banana bread this week and also followed along with Florence Pugh making a leftover veggie ratatouille.
i need to go to the grocery store.
Usually, I absolutely never cook other than frozen meals like popcorn chicken, fries, pizza, and taquitos, or pasta and hot dogs. Otherwise survive on lunch meat sandwiches for lunch.
But, with the current quarantine, I'm finally prepping some good, real meals that I'm proud to admit. Thank God for Crock Pots. Made a beef stew the other week, had one serving of it the night we made it, then froze the rest in tupperware so we can fall back on that if we get too sick to want to cook, and then we can just thaw that stuff out and be good to go.
Prepped a slowcooker turkey chili recipe tonight and I'm pretty excited to turn it on in the morning.
Also made ground turkey tacos and shredded steak and cheese subs.
Feels good to prep something other than just shoving a pizza in the oven lol.
@RyanPm40 thats awesome, you'll have to send a pic of that chili when its done! I got hooked on making crock pot meals during football season and days that I work from home. Nothing like walking through the front door and getting smacked with the aroma of a killer chili or stew.
I've gotten really into trying all the stuff from the Asian aisles of my local supermarkets here in the UK. We're no strange to Chinese or Indian food, in fact they're among our favourites, but Japanese and Korean cuisine is starting to become popular here.
I've tried a lot of stuff, and discovered for instance how great Kimchi is, but I spur of the moment bought some Gochujang paste and then realised I have no idea what to do with it.
Does anyone know any cool recipes or sauces or anything I can do with it? (I'm veggie, if that has an impact)
I don't have any recipes specifically as I don't know how to cook much Korean food, but I do know it's a pantry staple that is used a lot. I've seen it used in kimchi, bi bim bap, and other marinades/sauces. If you look around online you'll probably find plenty of recipes, and I know in the Netflix show The Chef Show they make a few recipes using it
I use it in anything that I would’ve normally used sriracha. My girlfriend and I make a lot of various stir fry with a sauce of some sort using gochujang but we just kind of wing it. I’ve made some variation of these before and they were great. Gochujang Stir-Fried Brussels Sprouts | Minimalist Baker Recipes
Thanks, I definitely will! Already smells great. I wish I could get a good photo of it while it's cooking but that lid is cloudy as hell right now heh
It's a super easy recipe too, very quick to prep but delicious
The bread came out great!
those look great! are they sourdough?
